On the Dust 2 map, the G2 Esports team showed an excellent side of the attack, they won the half with a score of 10:5. After switching sides, XTQZZZ's men started with a lost pistol round, but they immediately rehabilitated themselves and took a 5-round streak. FaZe Clan failed to demonstrate the wonders of the comeback and lost the opponent's pick. As for the individual form of FaZe Clan players, broky and Twistzz only made 12 frags for two, which we rarely see from players of this level. It's not surprising that FaZe Clan lost the opponent's pick, they have had a mediocre performance on the Dust 2 map for a long time. G2 Esports 16:7 FaZe Clan.

FaZe Clan did not improve much on Nuke, the again lost side with a score of 10:5, although G2 Esports started on the defensive side, but in the current realities, 10 rounds for special forces looks devastating. FaZe Clan looked much better for defense, but the lost starting rounds after switching sides really spoiled the picture for FaZe, they only had to make a mistake once and their opponent went to a match point. What can I say, today robban's men did not look the best, but G2 Esports looked very good, even their captain HooXi did not fall out of the picture. G2 Esports 16:12 FaZe Clan.
